Friday Face Off : “And, though there should be a world of difference between the smile of a man and the bared fangs of a wolf, with Joss Merlyn they were one and the same.”

FFO

Here we are again with the Friday Face Off meme created by Books by Proxy .  This is a great opportunity to feature some of your favourite book covers.  The rules are fairly simple each week, following a predetermined theme (list below) choose a book, compare a couple of the different covers available for that particular book and choose your favourite.   Future week’s themes are listed below – the list has been updated to help out those of you who like to plan ahead – if you have a cover in mind that you’re really wanting to share then feel free to leave a comment about a future suggested theme.  I’ve also listed events that take place during the year, that I’m aware of, so you can link up your covers – if you’re aware of any events that you think I should include then give me a shout.  This week’s theme is:

“And, though there should be a world of difference between the smile of a man and the bared fangs of a wolf, with Joss Merlyn they were one and the same.”  – a cover featuring an Inn/Hotel

Firstly, apologies that I’ve not been blog visiting – I’m without internet at the moment and only managing to post by linking my phone to my laptop whilst things get sorted (it uses a lot of data though so I’ll be blog hopping again hopefully in another week).  In the meantime, how did you all get on with this theme.  I think I’ve used this one before – whoops!  Anyway, I went for The Way Inn by Will Wiles – this is a book that I own but haven’t yet read and whilst the covers seem to be more of the interior it’s still an Inn – is that cheating?

Anway, not many covers this week but here they are:

I think I would have to go with the first cover this week – I like the way the title draws you down the corridor:

WayInn1

As with previous I’ve added a Mr Linky if you want to use it:

I’ve updated the list and included themes through to the end of 2019 – I’ve also included events that I’m aware of so that you can perhaps link your themes up where possible (if you know of an event you’d like to share that let me know in the comments).  I also have a list prepared for 2020 and so will set up a separate page soon for forthcoming themes.  As always, if you wish to submit an idea then leave me a comment.

Next week – a cover featuring a scream

Future themes: (if you’re struggling with any of these themes then use a ‘freebie’ or one of your favourite covers)

2019

18th October – “It’s your favorite scary movie, remember? He had on the white mask, he stalked the babysitters.” – A cover featuring a scream

25th October – for Halloween – pick any scary cover you like

(I’m hoping that November will once again bring to us SciFiMonth – Twitter @SciFiMonth)

1st November – A cover that is predominantly grey

8th November – “big badda boom” – a cover that features an explosion

15th November – “No thinking thing should be another thing’s property, to be turned on and off when it is convenient.” – a cover featuring a robot

22nd November – A cover that is Futuristic

29th November – “When a day that you happen to know is Wednesday starts off by sounding like Sunday, there is something seriously wrong somewhere.” – a cover that is 60s sci fi

6th December – Now is the winter of our discontent, Made glorious summer by this sun of York”  – a cover that puts you in mind of winter

13th December – A cover that features a temple/or religious icon

20th December – Longest Night –  a dark and foreboding cover

27th December – the festive season – a cover that is glittery or sparkling

(2020 – January is Vintage SciFi month so I’ll be including possible themes to take that on board.

    It reminds me of the corridor in The Shining

    And your quote is from the book that I chose for this theme, I believe:)). A good choice, Lynn – and I am going with your favourite, too. I haven’t read this one, though I’m guessing it’s a bit too creepy for me!

    • Jackie

      Yes, I believe you are right. It is why in my search for the quote I came upon Daphney DuMauriers Jamaica Inn.

    I love the first two covers. I’ve never heard of this book, but it sounds good! Hope your internet works itself out soon😁

  4. PerfectlyTolerable

    I like your pick and the 3rd cover, but I don’t think the 3rd cover captures the spookiness so I am going to have to agree with your choice 😀

  5. confessionsofayareader

    I like the one you chose best.

  6. maddalena@spaceandsorcery

    I like your choice of cover: even if I have no idea of this novel’s theme, it promises some weird and scary happenings… 🙂
    And good luck with the internet: it’s not fun being out of touch with the world!

  7. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    Great book and cover! I love perspective covers like that!

  8. waytoofantasy

    Have not heard of this one, but perfect for your theme! Nice cover, I love the shot like that, makes it feel kind of ominous.
